....Among the highlights: Two-hundred-and-thirty-seven members of Congress are millionaires. That's 44 percent of the body -- compared to about 1 percent of Americans overall....Source: Politico.com

Strange how the politicos can have 2 separate residences with families living a fine life style and yet they are able to sock away millions while earning just 6 figures. Must be good money management. Now if they could manage the country as well as they do their own finances.

But in reality the Legislators are bankrupting the country so that they can benefit their corporate benefactors.

Let's be honest corporate welfare doesn't come cheap.

But did you ever wonder why someone would want a job that pays 6 figures when they are worth 200 or so million?

Maybe they just want to serve their friends in corporate America.
